How to make a Twitter banner

1
Pick a Twitter banner template

Choose a Twitter banner design that you like from PicMonkey’s templates. Alternatively, you can start from scratch with a blank canvas.

Add photos to your design

If using a template with images, swap out template photos for your own, or choose from millions of professional stock photos or videos from our stock library. Customize your imagery's size, shape, color, and more with effects and editing tools.

3
Customize your template

Replace the text in the template with your own words, or add more text. Choose from hundreds of beautiful fonts, and customize the text's color and size, or try effects like curve or outline. Add graphics if they match your profile's style.

4
Share your Twitter banner!

When you're finished designing, download your design and upload to your Twitter profile. Your work will always auto-save to our cloud storage so you can return to it at any time.

FAQs about making Twitter banners

How should I design my Twitter banner?

Adhere to three rules: Keep things brand-focused, aim for quality over quantity (you don’t have much room, so minimalism is the name of the game), and keep important visual elements near the center of your banner (see: the safe zone) so that they aren’t cut off by your profile picture.

What size should my Twitter banner be?

The perfect Twitter banner size is 1500 x 500 pixels. Lucky for you, our templates are pre-sized so that you never have to worry about uploading a wonky design.
